Advice

Advice. I've had this topic on my brain A LOT lately. How often do you ask for advice? What do you ask for advice on? Who do you ask for advice? It's been coming up a lot lately because I feel like I've had these situations being thrown at me that are forcing me to evaluate and analyze every possible angle. I can't stand it! I love knowing exactly what to do and when to do it. But lately I feel I've had to seek counsel for multiple issues.

Then it brings me to, WHO do you ask for advice? This is a tricky one in my opinion. Someone could give you the best advice ever or the opposite and turn your situation into a worse one. How do you know what to listen to? And when do you get to the point where you go with your gut instinct and hope for the best. It scares me to think that if we went with the wrong advice what can happen. Who are you trusting in your life to give the best counsel?

I'm so TIRED of being put in situations where I feel I can't handle it on my own. Maybe God's trying to teach me something? Maybe He's showing me that it's ok to depend on others? Maybe. Or maybe it's a way to stretch me into building my decision making skills. Whatever the case may be... I'm tired.

This felt more like a venting blog than anything else, but it's where I'm at right now
